Welcome! I think you will find that this forum has some of the best, most kind, caring and knowledgeable people you will find. When I was in the process of being diagnosed, I honestly don't know what I would have done without them. I met my best friends through this forum.

Please know that you are NOT alone . . . and that you are in glad company. Just watch out during the full moon . . . . . . . . . . :lol: :ph34r:

I have been told by the GI and the neurologist that my inability to poop is DEFINITELY related to the neurological celiac. I have almost no motility without using the Miralax. Before that, I would do the same as you are doing -- LOTS of veggies, at least 12-15 prunes per day, what felt like gallons of water and . . . . . NOTHING. I would end up after 10-12 days having to remove an impaction. Sorry, I told you it was grose.

Even WITH the Miralax, I went to the Neurologist two weeks ago, and she could not hear any peristaltic sounds (bowel sounds). She kept listening and listening, then finally found one spot on my abdomen that had some type of sound. She said that it is definitely related to all of the neurological dysfunction that I have. It makes sense . . . . I didn't start to have that problem until I started with the neurological symptoms --- the stumbling, falling and all the like. Before that? I never knew when I was going to have the big D!!

What I find amazing is that, even though I only tested positive for antigliadin antibodies, since being gluten-free, I haven't had diarrhea once. That's in almost two years. Granted, for two years prior to that I didn't poop, but . . . . . . I also don't remember if I had any bouts of diarrhea during that time. Wish I could remember. It would be really interesting to know.
